Location in the UK : Scotland, Lewis and Harris Type of installation: Wave on/offshore: off Turbines :40 Capacity : 4 MW Approx Date of 1st power generation:
On the 22nd January 2009 the Scottish Government granted consent for the Siadar Wave Energy Project (SWEP) on the Scottish island of Lewis.
The scheme would harness power from the Atlantic waves in Siadar Bay to generate up to 4 megawatts of electricity. The energy produced each year could supply the average annual electricity needs of around 1,500 homes on Lewis and Harris.
The breakwater at Siadar Bay will consist of 9-10 concrete caissons placed together on the seabed, each of approximately 25m in length. Each caisson will weigh approximately 3,000 tonnes. A total of 36 to 40 Wells turbines will be used to generate the electricity.
SIADAR BAY wave power station plan wins islanders' support It would be sited close to the communities which would have been nearest to the 181 giant turbines which made up the proposed Barvas Moor wind farm - the very communities which were most opposed to the development. However, all are now backing the wa
